Ahead of the release, Jerro teased the Closer EP with mesmerizing lead single Demons. Featuring Montreal native Sophia Bel, the song effortlessly intertwines Sophia’s graceful vocals with a serene production from Jerro. Following Tunnel Vision, this is only the second offering from Jerro that features a vocalist, showcasing his increasing versatility in the studio.

The EP seamlessly transitions into the second track Mouie which capitalizes on Jerro’s melodic prowess with an enchanting sonic environment. The track swells with energy from start to finish with encompassing cinematic elements.

The third song is the title track, Closer. Blending lines between house music sub-genre lines, Closer utilizes a subtle vocal overlay over a deeper progressive house melody.

The final two song, Ignis and Sturdy provide a seemingly flawless combination of soothing yet hypnotic melodies. Ignis lends an atmospheric soundscape while Sturdy showcases an engaging progression.
